CTE Academy students have the opportunity to earn core content credit in the following courses in addition to their CTE course. Students will be required to meet periodically and complete additional coursework outside of their regular CTE block of time to meet all course standards and earn credit. Earning credit is accomplished through augmenting the approved CTE curriculum to meet core standards through separate small group instruction, an on-line component, and\or vodcasting. Successful completion of the additional coursework will require a high level of student responsibility and motivation, as much of the work will be done on an individual basis. Students taking core content courses will also benefit from more flexibility in scheduling courses toward graduation.
